An ode to the mid-century Toronto apartment Toronto Star

^ I do miss living in an apartment building. A house has some advantages, such as in unit laundry, a regular size fridge and a (nearly) full size oven. But renting a house is not the same because most of the neighbours own and aren’t going anywhere. There isn’t the curiosity of new people moving in across the hall.

2018 Bike Ride 06

Picked up my fixed bike after work. They replaced two spokes and straightened the rim. Now, it rides like a dream.

I should have brought a water bottle and gone on a longer ride on the hot sunny afternoon.

Total trip distance: 4.1 km

2018 Bike Ride 05

Beautiful Saturday to get out riding. Today’s adventure took me to Doors Open at R. C. Harris Water Treatment Works and the Toronto Archives. I also picked up the newest Jelly King (Pineapple Blueberry). Unfortunately, I had to cut my ride short and drop my bike off at the shop to get a broken spoke and a untrue wheel fixed.

Total trip distance: 30.1 km
